Fishing Fair,
Preston, Md. BIU Leeteb.
A while back we wrote on the
subject of world record fish, and
how important it is for the
angler to check any catch of
unusual size against existing
records. Here’s a typical case:
Robert N Shrafu, of Broomall,
Pa., fishing out of Cape May,
N. J„ landed » blackflsh or tau
tog weighing 21 pounds For
tunately Sheaiu recognized this
as an unusual catch, and finding
the existing world's record for
the species was 18 pounds, 8
ounces, he Q'ed claim with the
International Game Fish Associ
ation for an all-tackle record.
The previous record fish was
caught last October off Mon
tauk. N. Y.
Virginia’s Commission of Game
and Inland Fisheries is working
diligently on its program of pub
lic fish ponds for communities
where fishing opportunities are
somewhat lacking. After finish
ing a magnificent pond in
Mecklinburg County, they have
set out to create eight new bodies
of water for public fishing. Two
have been completed, one each in
Pittsylvania and Halifax Coun
ties. Work is progressing on a
pond in Brunswick and another
in Fauquier. A pond shortly is
to be acquired in Powahatan
and there is hope for final
clearance for starting work on
a pond each in Chesterfield, Scott
and Fluvanna Counties.

Charies Town Ready
To Open Big Summer
Meeting Tomorrow
" Special Dispatch to The Star
CHARLES TOWN, JT. Va..
July 3.—Charles Town’s "big”
meeting, its 36-day summer ses
sion, gets under way Monday
with a program at cd&ht races
starting at 2 p.m. (EDT) dally.
Racing Secretary j. Gilbert
Haus will have nearly 1,000
horses to call on, many of them
from Waterford/Park where the
meeting closed today. Comple
tion of a "new 58-stall stable
at Charles Town enables about
600 horses to find quarters on
the grounds, with the remainder
at Hagerstown Fair Grounds,
Berryville Fair Grounds and
other nearby locations.
The opening day’s feature race
has drawn a field of 11,‘headed
by N. Boemer’s Dover Coast and
Lee Whiteley’s entry of Sins
Egal and Helen Maisel as the
leading horses.
The Ellis Stables’ Boss Bennie,
a favorite at this track, also may
have good backing. Others in
the' lineup are Mrs, Virginia Mc-
Kenney’s Tetrabasic and Tetra
tomic, J. P. Simpson’s Rival
Time, D. B. Schmeck’s Wolf
heart, J. C. Ellis’ Dream Omoley,
Refnem Stables* Secret Passion
and I. E, Torrysons’ Newberry.
A number of other improve
ments in addition to the stables
have been made at the plant* in
cluding an enlarged club house.
As a means of attracting a high
er calibre of horses, purse money_
also has been increased from'
SI,OOO to $1,200 on 20 of the
races scheduled for the first 12
days of the session.
In addition to Haus, among
the officials at Charles Town are
Andrew R. Winters, steward;
Broks Johns, Joe Brocator and
Willie Garner, placing judges,
and Harold Holland, starter.
Holland will be starting his 14th
year on the job. .
Among the well-known Jockeys
riding at Charles Town will be
Charles M. Clark and Joe Sny
der, the leading riders at Water
ford Park. Clark rode here last
fall and again this spring with
considerable success, while Sny
der, an ex-steeplechase rider,
appeared here biefly several
years ago before he took to
guiding jumpers.

In Eastern Net Semifinals
By the Aitociated Free*
' HACKENSACK, N. J., July 3.
Eddie Moylan, New Jersey singles
champion from Trenton, and
Jerry DeWitts, California cham
pion from Oakland, today gained
the final round of the Eastern
clay courts tennis championships.
Top-seeded Moylan used a
strong ground-stroking game to
defeat fourth-ranked Pablo
Eisenberg of Millburn, N. J.,
7-5, 6-4, 6-2, in a semifinal
match.
De Witts, the third-seeded
entrant who recently completed
an Army tour of duty in Korea,
defeated Tim Coss of Washing

be shot. Lifting the ban on
deer of either sex on the last
day of the season rather than
on the first is in keeping with
the desire to have a large num
ber of does killed off for the
future welfare of the deer as
well as the hunters. Hunters
going into the woods for the
first time rather naturally look
for the opportunity to bag bucks
with trophy antlers a«d are likely
to pass up chances to kill female
deer. •
Problems In handling deer
have been acute through the
years in many States. If hunters
in Virginia will follow the com
mission’s guidance, there will be
no need for Virginia to repeat
the errors which have led to
tragic results elsewhere. Har
vesting a proper proportion of
does is one of the most impor
tant factors in deer management.
The hunters should recognize the
fact that when the commission
declares an open doe season, it
is fof\ the purpose of applying
well-known practices in the in
telligent management of detr
herds. x
Recently seven Hamilton, Ohio,
anglers journeyed into Ontario
and loaded up with walleyed
pike and pickerel. They ran
afoul of a smart game protector,
paid fines of S4BO plus another
S9OO in fees for the return of
seized equipment, including a
station wagon. They, got off
easy. When apprehended they
possessed the almost incredible
number of 565 fish. Their limit
would have been only 84. Vio
lations of this sort are leading
to stricter regulations in Canada,
thereby penalizing thousands of
American sportsmen who go
there on annual fishing trips.

Wimbledon
(Continued from Pdge D-l.)
with an 8-6, 6-4 victory today
over Armando Vieira of Brazil.
Miss Connolly—seldom called
“Little Mo” any longer—broke"
Miss Brough’s service within the
first four games and moved into
a 5-1 lead. She remained gen
erally on the baseline and
pounded shot after shot back
across the ’ net. Miss Brough,
herself a three-times-ta-a-row
Wimbledon queen, had few
answers for the kind of tennis
Miss Connolly served up.
Maureen Rallies in Second.
The second set started with
two service breaks and then of
all things, an opponent went
ahead of “Little Mo.” Miss
Brough grabbed a 5-2 lead, but
Maureen put a stop to all that.
Miss Brough did not win another
game. '
Miss Connolly has a long way
to go before equaling Helen Wills
Moody’s reebrd of seven Wim
bledon titles. However, she is
expected to tie Susan Lenglen’s
mark of four titles when she
comes back next year.
When the match was over the
little Californian said her mar
riage, for which a date has not
been set, would not keep her
from big tennis. “11l be at
plenty more Wimbledon’s yet. I
certainly will be back next year.”
Rain interrupted the men’s
doubles for 25 minutes after the
Australians had won the first
two sets and the count was one
game each in the third set. Up
to that point Trabert was mak
ing approximately two-thirds of
the points for the American
team. *,
In the fourth set, Seixas got
the Americans in the hole again
by losing his service and allow
ing the Aussies to go ahead, a—l.
The final break was against
Trabert in the last game. That
was the only Trabert loss.
Rose and Hartwig pumped
everything they could at Seixas.
Most of the Philadelphian’s
errors were, net shots.
The Americans started by
shooting at Hartwig, usually the
weaker of the Aussies. But with
their own affairs in such a shaky
condition, they stopped and
merely tried to-keep the ball in
play.
Seixas and Trabert. seeded No.
2 to the No. 1 ranking for the
Australians, had beaten Hartwig
and Rose both at the Queens
Club here two weeks ago and at
the French championships. Their
collapse today was a major sur
prise.

Spills, Olympic Tests Feature
Culpeper Horse Show Opening
By Robert B. Phillips
CULPEPER, Va., July 3.
Storms, spills and Virginia’s first
flash of interest in United States
Olympic equestrian competitition
provided a lively opening session
for the. three-day Culpeper Horse
Show and races here today.
Within minutes after the last
pony and junior class had been
judged and scores posted for
adults in the Olympic trials, a
thunderstorm rolled over the
show grounds and race course,
sending youngsters and their
mounts scurrying to the vans
and dousing the jockeys.
A few moments before the first
drops fell, young Sarah Willis
of Alexandria .was carried from
the outside course in the Cul
peper Rescue Squad ambulance
after Mrs. William Dillon’s April
Dawn made a bad mistake at a
post and rail fence and fell, kick
ing the young rider. She was
treated on the spot by Dr. A.lvin
Kay of Bethesda, here to show
some pohies of his own, and then
carried to town for treatment
of cuts about the eyes and face.
Later she was sent to the Uni
versity Hospital at Charlottesville
for observation.
It was the second fall in the
junior hunting attire class—the
other gave young Terry Yates a
good shaking up—and the third
was attributed to excessive pace.
Touchdowners lo Honor
Killibrew al Luncheon
The Touchdown Club will pay
tribute to Harmon Killebrew, the
Senators’ recently signed bonus
rookie, at its weekly luncheon at
12:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Killebrew will be a guest of
honor, along with Clark Grif
fith, president of the ball club,
and Manager Bucky Harris and
some of his better performers—
Jim Busby, Eddie Yost and
Johnny Pesky.
6enator Herman Welker, Re
publican of Idaho, who helped
Washington land the hard-hit
ting Killebrew, will be guest
speaker.
Government Employes'
Tennis Opens Saturday
The Government Employes’
tennis tournament, sponsored by
the District Recreation Depart
ment, will get under way Satur
day at Sixteenth and Kennedy
streets N.W.
All employes of the Federal,
State, District and foreign gov
ernments are eligible.
Entries in all classes—men’s
and women’s singles and doubles
—should be made at the Recre
ation Department, 3149 Sixteenth
street N.W., Adams 4-2050: or
the Tennis Shop, 1126 Nineteenth
street N.W., National 8-5165, by
5 pm. Wednesday.
The judges seemed to be pinning
fast horses and ponies and in
their eagerness to win many of
the Junior riders were hitting a
steeplechase lick.
Only a handful of* spectators
left the stands to watch the in
tricate dressage phase of the
Olympic tests, but they saw the
first glimmering of hope that
Virginia, supposedly the hot
house for blossoming - young
horsemen, would at last develop
a rider of international stature.
In recent years, the Olympic
equestrian squad has come from
such unlikely sources as Con
necticut, New Jersey and Kansas,
while the fox hunting areas have
never made a contribution.
Wherever the contestants here
today may stand in relation to
others over the country, they
were closely matched in the
opening scores. Two horses tied
for first, another pair for second
and fourth honors also were a
dead heat.
Leading the field In the first
part of the tliree-day event were
Itala, owned by the Countess A.
Gyurky, ano Kurtistan, an
Arabian horse owned by Forrest
Mars of The Plains, Va. .
Tomorrow the same horses go
into the cross-country phase of
